I am waist deep in boxes filled with cookbooks, clothes, brown boots, and every novel written by Sophie Kinsella.
How have I collected so much stuff in the five years I’ve lived in my condo?? And how am I ever going to decide what to take to Montreal and what to leave behind??
Photos – yes. I want my loved ones close even if it is only in images. Shoes – no. I cannot justify filling a U-Haul with five different versions of brown boots. I will bring two pairs.
And what to do about the clothes?? Well, check out this concept originally published in the NY Times back in 2010: surviving with only six items of clothing in your closet. T and I talked about doing this way back then but neither of us followed through… but every now and then we bring it up again. I think now is the time to tackle the challenge because I. am. tired. of. packing. boxes. (I’ve also had the nagging thought in the back of my head that I never actually confirmed my new loft-style apartment in Montreal has a closet (!!!!!) as it was rented sight unseen.)
So here I go… wish me luck!
